In 2007, tensions between China, Japan, North and South Korea, and even the United States threaten to ignite all-out war. The root of this crisis is Japan's creation of a branch of its military that most of its neighbors view as a threat to regional peace. However, an inside group is also contributing to this crisis, and Special Agent Sam Fisher of Third Echelon is sent to the region to defuse the crisis and find out who is behind it. Written by Sam

Did You Know?


Because the game depicts a war between North and South Korea, South Korea, which as of 2011 is still officially, but not actually, in a state of war with its northern neighbor, banned the game to avoid tensions with North Korea. However, this ban was lifted in 2007, and also applied to some other games that depicts a war between the two Koreas. See more »


On the computer version of the game, the South Korean soldiers speak Korean with a North Korean accent. In reality, they would speak Korean with a South Korean accent. See more »


Sam Fisher: [after grabbing a patrolling guard] This is private property.
Bank Guard: What are you talking about? I've been working here for two years!
Sam Fisher: Well, prove it...
Bank Guard: Okay... Well, the code to that door is... hey, wait, you're trying to trick me!
Sam Fisher: Ok, you got me, I surrender. Oh, wait, how about you tell me the code anyway and I won't be forced to hurt you?
Bank Guard: Okay, the code is...

kick butt game
29 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I got this game today (3/29/05) and played forever. The only reason that I stopped playing was because of the parents. This game is the best Splinter Cell game. It has kick butt graphics, sound, AI, physics and more. If you are looking for a game to rival any and defeat it, get this one. The fact that there are different paths through and around most obstacles is awesome. In the first two games, which were and still are sweet, you could only go one way through a level and each time you died you had to do the same boring "stuff". Not here. The new moves and different paths are awesome. I especially love the stealthy kills with the knife or choke hold while hanging upside down. Ubisoft and Tom Clancy did a great job at creating a game sequel that is better then the rest.

P.S. "Kick butt" just doesn't do justice but it is prohibited to say what I want to say. But everyone should know what I'm trying to say.
